Novel as the profile may appear, with its pointed heel and arching shank, this Ardor shape proves right at home in hand. The height of the bowl offers plenty to grip, the taper conforms well, and the transition and shank leave a lot of free room for the thumb. There's a good amount of thickness to the walls, and no little amount of depth to the chamber. Taken all together, this spells a briar that may be unusual in character, but will certainly provide a long and easy smoke.
